…if, while moving over to my new digs, I were to take advantage of the one-click [WordPress] installation offered by [Dreamhost] and finally dip my toes in waters other than those of [Movable Type], are there any pieces of advice I should know about? Plugins I should pay particular attention to? Tips or tricks I should know or avoid?

So far, I’ve managed to track down [PHP Markdown] and [PHP Smartypants], and have activated [Akismet], but that’s it (and all this is on a non-public test installation). I’m particularly interested in seeing if there’s a good (easy to implement) ‘tagging’ solution, such as I’m using here in lieu of categories. Googling for ‘[wordpress tags]’ tends to bring up lots of information on the formatting tags used in WP templates, which isn’t what I’m aiming for.
